Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Wimbledon Qualifying, Second Round

Melanie Oudin (USA) d. (5)Alexandra Dulgheru (ROU) 64 62

I actually thought she could come back, but Oudin can be v. good on grass

I thought Oudin would be dead tired going 10-8 in the 3rd the day before.

She must've been full of confidence and played through the fatigue

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Oh, Alexandra, just when I thought you would be back for real.

I don't want to blame everything on injuries. Maybe it was just a bad day at the office.

The consolation is picking up an additional 20 points here.

That, and the qualifying paychecks aren't half-bad these days http://www.wimbledon.com/pdf/Prize_Money_2014.pdf

It was a tough section and I wouldn't read too much into the loss to Oudin. It was only Alexandra's second match on grass since Wimbledon 2011

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Yes, Oudin has proven she can put it together for a few matches in a row on grass in the past.

Besides, her FQR opponent would've been Wozniak, who is decent on the grass since she hits so hard and flat

Would've been nice seeing her in all white at Wimbledon though

Is there a French 100K on clay the 2nd week of Wimbledon? It worked out so well for her after falling in 2nd Round Qualies of RG

Interesting stuff: I saw Vandeweghe only 2 times play till now, but, after a closeR look at some photos, she resembles with Alexandra pretty much IMO .

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Maybe a slight similarity in the shape of the face (and eyebrows ). I guess I can see it in a few pictures, but once Coco's mannerisms come into play, all similarities are out the window.
